Authorization Code

An authorization code is sent to a client as the first step in an Authorization Code Grant. When the client receives the authorization code, it calls the Login with Amazon authorization service with the code, their client identifier and client secret .

The authorization code is useless by itself, and therefore any malware that intercepts the authorization code cannot impersonate the client to gain an access token.
